The Santa Anita Winners’ Circle BBQ Championship this is a one day, high volume event that attracts thousands of attendees. With free event parking at gate 6 and expanded marketing, we look forward to even greater attendance .This is a very fast paced, high energy one day foodie mecca. Our past events have received overwhelming praise from our vendors, many who wanted to immediately sign up for future years. Very few vendor spaces will be open for this event in 2018. 

People love good BBQ, and they love cool, unique vendor wares. You can showcase your finest items in front of thousands of happy people. And here’s the best part – happy people like to buy those cool vendor products.

If you have a unique, food related or high quality product, we encourage you to immediately apply as we will only be accepting a limited number of  new vendors. Independent sales representatives of a product or service that cannot have a competing vendor present (i.e. Scentsy, Pampered Chef,  Perfectly Posh, Cookie Lee, Tupperware, Thirty One Gifts, etc.) should NOT send an entry form without first confirming availability, use the contact form here. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate any onsite consumable food or drink products/items (shaved ice, kettle corn, cookies, cupcakes, etc.), personal protection items, weapons, anything that makes a sudden or excessive noise/sounds/flashes/lights (as this could disturb the horses), or items which are not suited for a family-friendly environment.

Please note that for 2018 we have already filled the slots for the following vendors:

  • LipSense
  • Origami Owl

We do encourage vendors with non-onsite consumable food products like BBQ sauces, jerky, nuts, dips, rub, salsa mix, condiments, hot sauces, teas, jams, olive oil, etc. However, these vendors will be required to complete a Temporary Food Facility (TFF) form (which we will send you) and pay the Los Angeles County Environmental Health Department Permit (LAC – EHD) Fee* ($71, unless you plan to have the public sample your products, then your fee is $101), as well as comply with all of the LAC – EHD requirements, this is non-refundable, and for your convenience added to your vendor fee.

* This fee is waived if you are a U.S. Military Veteran, proof required.

The vendor sign up form is now posted below.
